Is it right to say that this study reflects the U.S.A. market only???

No, it is not right to say that. It reflects English speaking surveillance professionals - only half of our members are from the US.

John,

Very interesting, and to a degree, predictable, results (though there are certainly some surprises)

I think some rough demographics of those who took the survey would fill in relevance gaps present in this analysis. You answered that partially about half your membership being from the U.S., but can you dive deeper for us?

  • Ratio of manufacturers, distributors, dealers and/or end-users?
  • Influencer vs Decision Maker vs User

It's roughly 60% integrator/channel, 30% manufacturer, 10% end users.

Who is an influencer vs decision maker is an incredibly subjective claim, I wouldn't take a guess and asking people is likely to deliver skewed results.

Thanks John.

I notice that the HDcctv only has 5% interest. Perhaps next year they can up that to 10%, making them have one of the fastest growing interest levels on IPVM. Maybe Todd can make news by streaking down the aisle at ISC West <shudder>.

It's funny / sad that HDcctv beat out SIA. Maybe Todd is more of a thought leader than the SIA :)

Btw, HDcctv 2.0 is now officially out but the alliance has long blown any opportunity to be relevant.

I'm surprised HDcctv got even 5% interest. But then again, that could just be infamy. Globally, more people know about Hitler than Ghandi. Just sayin.

I would like to use this but it dont seem to work on IE 9.

Yes, i know its old! but it´s not up to me to change it... company rule.

Ps, It would be interesting to see how the figures change over time.. how is gaining in intrest and so on.

We do plan to track this over time though we will wait 2 years since things don't change that quickly.

What does not work specifically on IE9? What can't you 'use'? Do you mean the news preferences selector?

Yes, the news preferens selector doesnt work for me on IE9. I cant choose any company to follow unfortionatly. But i like the idea.

I think Digifort is missing in this list.

Marcel, among our English speaking membership, Digifort would rank very low even if included, simply because very few Know about them in native English speaking countries.

Despite that, i still think you should include.They are really well sucessed in Brazil, and they are selling to austrilia, south america, europe, china and others....

Could we see a year over year chart to see who had the largest growth interest / dis-interest?

Yes, the plan is to track this over time. A year might be too short of time to see much of a difference but we'll definitely do it at least every other year.

Nice work, IPVM team.
